During the week of festivities leading up to the inauguration of President Donald Trump, The Washington Post reported that the spirit of bipartisanship was alive and well at social events around Washington, D.C.
Every four years, the presidential election creates winners and losers in Washington. In the political world, the victors celebrate, the vanquished stay home.
But in the social world, elites from both parties gather — in the bipartisan spirit of patriotism, of course — to mark the inauguration with receptions, dinners and plenty of alcohol.
Among the featured party hosts was Constance Milstein:
Connie Milstein, owner of the Jefferson Hotel and a generous donor to Democrats, is hosting a “Salute to the Senate” on Thursday. On Election Night 2014, Milstein teamed up with Republican strategist Rachel Pearson for a party at the hotel; this year, Kristi Rogers, wife of former GOP congressman Mike Rogers of Michigan, is joining them for a salute to the upper chamber. The trio have invited about 200 people in the hope that we can all just get along.
“Now more than ever is the time to encourage a spirit of graciousness here in Washington,” Milstein said. “It’s important for us to gather together, put aside partisan bickering, place country first and enjoy one another’s company. Remembering simple courtesies, along with a few cocktails, could actually go a long way!”
